St Valentine's day or heartstrings


I stayed up late to make a card for hubby, bit late but better than never! It nearly was never as I didn't know if I should bother.

I used two of my new stamps which I bought as a set although they are different makes they go so well together!

Then I tied a Ratatouille DVD in some tissue paper tied with elastic string with a heart threaded on, to match the card!

He was really chuffed but hadn't got anything for me, romance is dead I thought - well I thought that a long time ago, but when I got home and went to change there were 6 red roses in the bedroom!

I coloured the stamp with Marvy wet look pens and was very impressed that after the time it took to do that they still stamped perfectly and the image heat embossed beautifully too. I think I will buy some more pen sets! Then I coloured the hearts with Sakura Gel pens. The sentiment is All Night Media and the hearts on strings is Inkadinkado. The card is metallic red.

  1. What a great surprise for you (not the roses but the fact that some men still find time for romance):):) LUCKY you ;) and your card is great plus your idea to tie the gift in with your card theme.
